    I had a 32GB iPad 2 and it worked fine for me, so when I got the new iPad, I got the 32GB. Sadly, this one seems to be really low on space (5GB left) because I'm using it more. I want to exchange it within my 14 days for a 64GB, but I have a perfect iPad right now, and I'm scared I'll get one with a yellow tint or someone of that sort. What are the chances of this happening, and what can I do if this happens?

    Slim at best. The problems posted on here represent less then 1% of the iPad market. and people with perfect iPads don't typically seek out a forum to post how it works perfectly.

    That being said I did the same exact thing. Had a wifi only model that I exchanged for a LTE. I was hesitant for the exact same reason and when I got it I thought it had a yellow tinted screen. Turns out that my iPads screen is just about perfect and I was comparing it to other screens tinted too blue. My skin tones, whites and blacks are just about perfect.

    Don't fear exchanging. You're almost guaranteed a perfect iPad. And when u get it, be sure to open it up in the store and do all the checks you can to satisfy for OCD's;)

    Can you actually do a swap like that and just pay the difference?

    If the stores return policy permits it, why not?

    Sure. If you buy from the Apple Store, they have a 14 day no-questions-asked return policy. Other retailers may have similar policies.

    I was on the same boat. Exchanged a perfect 32GB for a 64GB and it ended up having a dead pixel so I exchanged that for another 64GB today. This one is a bit better but I'm not sure if it's as good as my original 32GB.

    Apple seems to be pretty fair about exchanging iPads until we are happy, so don't hesitate to keep going back if you end up with bad units.
